DCFS says that they usually have at least two kids in the hospital at all times who have recently been removed from homes and do not yet have a foster family or who have a foster family but the foster parent is unable to be with the child 24/7. These kids, many of them infants and toddlers, should not be left alone in a room but the hospital does not provide someone in the room 24/7. The state requires a relatively brief training and certification process to be on a list to sit with these kids in the hospital. Sitters are notified when their is a need and have an opportunity to say yes or no to that instance.
